Video Email: What Is It and When to Use It

It’s the end of another quarter. Maybe your sales are slow, your current accounts aren’t expanding or you need something to help the team jazz up their current process.

Video Email is a great form of communication that thousands of businesses are now embracing. A Video Email platform benefits both your team and your clients, as it drives engagement through innovation.

You can use Video Email for marketing but it works even better as a sales tool. Video Email assists your sales team, helping increase sales frequency and expand existing accounts.

Sales reps are able break up the monotony of faceless phone calls and non-personal emails by putting a face to the name with Video Email.

The magic of Video Email

When browsing social media you’re more likely to watch a quick video than read a paragraph of text. Video is far more attractive and engaging than any other form of media. Better yet, social video generates 1200% more shares than text and image content combined.

Video Email gives you and your recipients the flexibility and convenience of an email, but has the connection of a Zoom meeting. If your company isn’t on board with the latest trends and changing times you could be left behind.

What is a Video Email?

Rather than writing a plain text email you would use your webcam to record your message. By creating Video Email you put a face to the name and add that human touch. Typically, these are short, one-off videos and are highly personalised for each recipient.

You can share these videos easily via email, text or social media and recipients can watch your video on a Branded Landing Page which has clickable Call-to-Action buttons.

It’s similar to a traditional email but a Video Email is embedded within the message. When you open up the Video Email in your inbox the Animated Snapshot/Video Preview GIF immediately captures your attention and encourages you to click and watch.
